Boom! Goes the fireworks lighting up the dark sky,
I hear the sound of the whistling fireworks echoing in the smoke-filled air.
Families gather around the roman candle about to explode,
Sssssss! The fountain emits showers of colours and sparks.
Fizzzzz! I hear the sparklers sizzle in my hand,
Brrrrr! my hands and feet are freezing in the night time air.
The firework wheels are spinning a rainbow of colour glistening under the moon,
Popping cascades are jumping with delight
